The Boxing Lesson

The Boxing Lesson have a lot going on in their personal lives right now [you can read about it here] but that hasn't stopped them from making an outstanding new album, Wild Streaks and Windy Days.

The two tracks highlighted here are my favorites. "Brighter" is a Queens of the Stone Age-esque freakout that burns out at the 3:30 mark while "Lower" strums along for more than double the length. This is where you can find the comparisons to Pink Floyd and the more psychedelic Verve songs.

The Boxing Lesson -- Brighter

The Boxing Lesson -- Lower
Both tracks are from the Wild Streaks and Windy Days album.
